When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Best way to find out, besides going to the local police department, is to check sites like crimespotting.org

And since you're on Trulia, they also have a site http://www.trulia.com/crime/Oakland,CA/

Compare these stats with what you see in San Francisco

To be sure, it's the right neighborhood for you. Your need to visit the area during different times of the day. Attend a few community meetings to see how residents of the area feel about it, then you can make an informed decision as to if the Adams point neighborhood is a good fit for you.

Its a high density area so there will be crimes committed. The websites recommended by other agents will tell you specifically what types of crimes are prevalent and their frequency. There are many pluses to Adams point as well. Grand Lake shopping. Farmers market.Trader Joe's Whole Foods Lake Merritt etc. Theres a neighborhood video on my website. Check it out. Good luck!
